Greg Gross of the York Dispatch writes about Creative York’ major revamp that will not only reconfigure and upgrade our buildings in York City but also change how we operate….
We are beyond excited and grateful to announce that through the Kerlins’ outstanding leadership we not only met, but exceeded, our capital campaign goal! Nearly 200 generous individuals, businesses, and foundations in York donated to the Creative York Capital Campaign, raising a total of $1,500,000!
Thank you to every single donor, and everyone who helped bolster support for this campaign. You have made this possible, and we cannot wait to share with you the impact of your investment!
The campaign may be over, but our work is just beginning.
We’re nearing the end of our campaign. If you have not yet made the commitment, now is the perfect time.
This is a very special opportunity to support Creative York. After 25 years of bringing art and art classes to the York community, it is time to dramatically expand our offerings and extend creativity even further.
The money raised during this campaign is designated for major transformations that will reinforce the foundation by which we serve the community for the next 25 years. By investing in this capital campaign, you can make our annual impact even greater!
Thank you for considering a gift to this special campaign. By helping make this campaign a success, you will inspire a more creative future for York!
To cross the finish line, we need your help. March is the last month of this campaign. We are $785,000 away from reaching our stretch goal of $1.8 million.
You are the backbone of our organization because you make all of our work possible. Your gift to the capital campaign is extremely important to the York community, as it will fuel the creative well-being of your community well into the future.
You have until the end of March to help us make this campaign a success. Please consider making as generous a gift as you can. Thank you!
New testimonials will be added every Tuesday throughout our Capital Campaign.
We begin the month of February with $957,500 raised from the generous and inspired people of York County (and beyond!).

If you or a group you’re affiliated with is interested in raising money on our behalf to benefit our campaign, we gladly accept your graciousness and look forward to speaking with you about ways to work together.
A community is made up of many parts: business, sports, education, the arts. Art — and access to art — defines the cultural maturity of a community.
For the past 25 years, YorkArts has been a leader in bringing art and art classes to the York community. Sustaining and expanding arts education are priorities of YorkArts. Under the banner of “Thriving Communities Start with Creativity,” we are proud to co-chair a campaign to raise $1.3 million for this valued organization.
